THE RING - BLOCKS EDITION is a temporal modulation tool for creative sound design and a live performance using REAKTOR Blocks. The release consists of an iPad *LEMUR template and a brand new REAKTOR Blocks module, together giving you the ability to get away from the mouse and modulate your Blocks using the power of touch.
The Blocks Edition of THE RING comes with a REAKTOR Block module, called THE RING - OSC RECEIVER. This module automatically receives and converts OSC control messages sent from the iPad to audio rate control messages designed to be used as modulation signals within the REAKTOR Blocks framework. This allows you to control REAKTOR Blocks using your iPad running THE RING inside the Lemur app. The only setup required is the OSC configuration, but other than that the Blocks module takes care of the rest. Just patch away as if it was any old REAKTOR block.
*Lemur sold separately.
I've released a new update for NOD-E including 20 new snapshots. I made this update using Reaktor 5.9.3, so it shoud be compatible for users running latest version of Reaktor 5 and Reaktor 6.

Twisted Tools is very excited to announce the arrival of POLYPLEX 1.1 - an eight-part drum sampler with extraordinary randomizing, layering, and design capabilities, now with enhanced workflow features and five dedicated single ‘unit’ instruments. If you already own POLYPLEX, the free update to v1.1 is now available via the NI Service Center. If you don’t, now is the time to dive deeper into rhythm.
To celebrate the arrival of POLYPLEX 1.1, Twisted Tools has created a free expansion pack called BLAST OFF, featuring 30 bonus kits & 128 samples
POLYPLEX v1.1 is now available for just $69 exclusively at Native Instruments.
Twisted Tools is 5 years old! To celebrate and thank you for your continued support, we’re giving away a free Lemur template by Antonio Blanca called ‘THE RING’ and are having a 33% OFF SALE.
WHAT’S THE RING?
The Ring is a Lemur template by Antonio Blanca, previously used internally at Twisted Tools as a sound design tool for the rapid modulation of sounds. It’s a kind of “Temporal Control Shifter” with 16 assignable OSC/MIDI controls for Lemur Liine App. It allows you to have a set of initial settings for those controls that you can transform temporally using an XY object (named RING) and revert back to your initial settings when the XY object is released. This can be very useful in realtime live performances where you want to control Audio FX / Synth parameters such as filters, delays, reverbs, modulation levels, envelopes, sends, etc., and then jump back to your original sound after playing with those parameters.
There are eight presets you can use to store and recall your settings, including a preset interpolation option with adjustable time to create smooth transitions between presets.

Brand new snapbank & sample map for a legendary Reaktor Ensemble
On behalf of all of us here at Twisted Tools, we'd like to wish you a very Happy Holiday! To celebrate, we've created a brand new snapbank and sample map for the legendary DRON-E Reaktor ensemble, originally created by Antonio Blanca and now exclusively available at Twisted Tools.
About Antonio Blanca
Antonio Blanca, known for his world class Lemur templates, Reaktor ensembles and sound design for companies such as Apple and Native Instruments, is the latest member of the Twisted Tools team so expect more great things in the near future!
Lewis James, lead sound designer at Guerrilla Games let me know that DRON-E was used to create sounds like "Alien Soundscapes and Ambiences" for the video game Killzone Shadow Fall one of the franchise games available on Sony Playstation 4 only.
I find Dron-e to be a really flexible way of creating ambiences and soundscapes that are way outside of the norm and it gives you so many options to manipulate the sound in really interesting and innovative ways. I used it a good bit for making ambiences and alien soundscapes in Killzone: Shadowfall and I will definitely continue to use it on future projects...
Looking forward to hear how the sound design team used it, and a thanks a lot to Lewis James for letting me know.
Please Check some of Lewis's music at:

OSC LEMURIZED AND IMPROVED
Twisted Tools is excited to announce the arrival of S-LAYER 1.5!
The new update allows you to control S-LAYER from your iPad using high resolution OSC, Liine's Lemur app and a brand new custom template by Lemur expert Antonio Blanca.
S-LAYER just got even better.
The Fragment macropack by GLITCHMACHINES features 300 sound effects by Ivo Ivanov, an exclusive Inear Display plugin based on Eurydice, and a custom Lemur template from Antonio Blanca providing full MIDI control of the Fragment plugin.
The lo-fi character of this sample pack is suitable for projects in need of aggressive, provocative, and mind-bending material. Sourced from a private collection of circuit bent hardware, these samples were skillfully layered and processed to offer a fresh perspective on the sonic range typically associated with bent sounds.
Inear Display’s Fragment plugin is a collaborative effort between Thomas Hennebert, Ivo Ivanov, and Antonio Blanca. It features a granulizer/stutter effect, a multimode filter, and an LFO, and is designed to achieve a wide range of sonic artifacts. Fragment includes a custom Lemur template for iPad, crafted by sound designer and Lemur expert Antonio Blanca, giving you multi-touch control over every parameter.
The FRAGMENT macropack is available from GLITCHMACHINES.
Liine has released a new update to its application Lemur, including two new templates that can be easily added to any project.
It is a two-dimensional modulator that lets you draw an automation with adjustable speed and reading options, enabling complex modulations, which can be synchronized with MIDI note events. The lemur memory usage is really low, allowing you to load several of them in the same project.
it is a box fader, but no simple faders! Each fader has an editor that lets you modify their output values. A Master Fader allows you to move all faders (it includes physics settings and its own editor) simultaneously. Also The Master fader can receive information from the modulation wheel of your MIDI keyboard, to modulate the parameters assigned while you play your instument. Finally, you can select whether the faders work, midi or osc. Like AB Vekter, you can add this template to any of your own projects.
